How did you make your way to working at NST Pictures?
I first worked for NST Pictures in 2013 as a Business Development Assistant to help the company grow its business. After moving onto other positions over the years to pursue other endeavors, I’ve worked in different industries such as sports marketing, sales/marketing, and retail management. My background has allowed me to tailor and refine my skills in communication, organization, and client relations.
Why did you choose the wedding industry?
I was looking to get back into the wedding industry in August of 2016 and the first company I considered was NST Pictures. Coincidentally, they had an open wedding consultant position, which was perfect timing. I wanted to bring my talent and expertise in sales, client relations, and business development to the table, and I wanted to be a part of the planning process for a couple’s happy time in life.
What do you like about working at NST Pictures?
Working at NST allows for creative collaboration and a chance to network and share experiences with other great wedding vendors. We are a female-driven team that empowers each other to get the job done, but we are a group that likes to have fun too =]
What is your favorite part of your job as one of NST’s Wedding Consultants?
You’ve coordinated hundreds of weddings (literally!) so what wedding videography advice do you have for couples?
I got engaged on 12/23/17 so I can definitely relate to what my couples are going through!
The best advice I can give couples that are getting married is to plan, do your research, and invest in a service that will not only play an important role in the wedding day, but also consider investing in something that’s intangible and will last a lifetime such as a wedding video so you can relive the moments whenever you want, wherever you want =]
Outside of NST, what other artistic passions do you pursue?
I love making beats on my Yamaha keyboard!
You’re more than just a wedding expert though, so to get to know you better, tell us about your ideal day off of work!
When I’m off from work, I enjoy working out at the gym, getting manicures/pedicures, trying new cuisines, and going on adventures with my German Shepherd Hunter =]
